Nancy Fedak Ross Exceptional Nurse Award winners


Lisa Roth, NICU

Community Service
Nurse of the Year

NICU nurse practitioner Lisa Roth shows tremendous skills and compassion to not only her patients but to the community as well. Roth spends her weekends off at Peter and Paul’s soup kitchen in Soulard. She is active in the St. Louis Winter Outreach program, where she travels around the city to help homeless people by giving them coats, hats, scarves and other needed items. Roth was instrumental in working with the Mission Awareness Team to bring a coat drive to SSM Cardinal Glennon. She and her family adopt a NICU family each year and help them have a special Christmas. She is a true leader in the community.




Laura Lynn, NICU

Leader of the Year

True change can take time but sometimes, it just takes the right person in the right place. Laura Lynn became charge nurse in Danis Pediatrics in July 2011. In less than a year, she introduced programs and day-to-day processes to improve patient care, service and efficiency. She has led a staff of eight nurses and medical assistants to ensure they are informed, trained and have current credentials. Through her knowledge, encouragement and willingness to work hard as a team member, Lynn has been a critical part of improvements in Danis Pediatrics. She is a strong leader and asset to our employees and patients.


Brooke Brothers, TCU

Mentor of the Year

Families are an integral part of our care process, and no one demonstrates this more than Brooke Brothers, CSN and charge nurse on TCU. Brothers works hard to ensure that doctors, nurses and families work together to develop a plan of care for patients. While developing this plan, she rounds with each family to plan discharge needs and check in. She is a mentor to other nurses on the TCU, making herself available to staff as a go-to person on the unit. Brothers is a reliable nurse who stays calm in stressful situations and shares her sunny attitude with the families she serves. She is a great example of the impact a great nurse can have on families.



Kelly Farace, TCU

Rookie of the Year

TCU nurse Kelly Farace has fast proved a critical member of the SSM Cardinal Glennon family. Through her compassionate and thorough care, she has formed strong bonds with the families she serves. She eagerly helped precept a senior nursing student to explain nursing interventions. She goes the extra step for her patients, taking on a community service project through the shared governance team. She taught children how and when to call 911 and explained in words they could understand the importance of knowing basic things like their address and phone number. She is a tremendous asset to her patients and families.
